The first step is to register with My Aged Care. Who provide access to the in-home aged care system in Australia. My Aged Care will then arrange for a representative to discuss, with you, your current health, medical history and lifestyle to learn about what you may require. You will also complete an income assessment so the government knows how much, if anything, you can afford to contribute towards the cost of your care.
Once you know the level of funding you have available and your home care package is in place, start thinking about the range of services you would need to support you to live independently at home.
